Visiting safely

The Art Museum of Estonia wishes to offer visitors a pleasant visiting experience.

When viruses are spreading, it is important to protect your own health and that of others. Our halls are spacious and visitors are able to keep their distance from other people. Be sure to stay home if you are sick or have been in close contact with someone who is. Together we can keep our society open!

Pursuant to the regulations of the government of the Republic of Estonia and the Health Board which entered into force on 15 November 2021, all visitors to the Estonian Art Museum (12 years and three months and older), including e-ticket holders, upon arrival must present COVID certificates proving vaccination or recovery.

Valid proof in digital or printed form:

  • Valid vaccination passport,
  • Certificate proving recovery from COVID-19 (valid for 180 days after a positive test).

In order to visit the museum, along with COVID certificates proving vaccination or recovery, it is also required that young people 12 years and 3 months to 17 years of age present certificates proving negative results of PCR or antigen RT tests done by a healthcare service provider. The PCR test must have been done no more than 72 hours and the antigen-RT test no more than 48 hours before arrival. The results of rapid tests done at general pharmacies are also valid.

In order to confirm your identity, the certificate is only valid together with an identity document.

  • Please wear a mask. All visitors 12 years and older are required wear masks.

As of 15 November 2021, students attending in-person schooling (12 years old to those turning 19 during the 2021/2022 academic year) do not have to present COVID certificates in order to participate in museum classes.
However, certificates must be presented by the adults accompanying the students.

COVID-19 safety label

With the COVID-19 safety label, trusted to us by Visit Tallinn we confirm that we follow the requirements and instructions of the Government and the Health Board of Estonia (https://kriis.ee/en) established for our industry or field, that we keep up to date with the information, and that we help visitors comply with the infection-prevention guidelines on site.

We recommend

  • We recommend you download the HOIA app to your smartphone.

The HOIA coronavirus app, available in the App Store and Google Play, notifies people when they’ve been in close contact with a coronavirus carrier. The phones of the app users exchange anonymous codes via Bluetooth. The state, as well as the app and phone manufacturers, do not collect any personal data. The app has been developed under the leadership of the Ministry of Social Affairs, but a total of twelve private Estonian companies have contributed to its creation, all of which have done so voluntarily and without receiving any payment. The app will work best when as many people as possible use it. You will find the most important information related to the app here.
